I think it costs a lot of money and very dreamy at 1.2

MF with 1.2 will be difficult (A nightmare!)

I think that even with AF focussing will be a nightmare! The AF System of the actual Pentax cameras (do not know AF of K3) works at the 5.6 Level accuraltelly.

Maybe the lens will be an Advantage to give a lot of light on the sensor and so the AF System gets enought light to wark at low light - but I would not use this lens at Maximum aperture opening.

I think most people find the 1.4 dreamy enough.

Look up the Pentax Lens Database for reviews and samples!
